Hi all,

My dad was up at the lake home this past weekend and he said that there was a major storm that rolled through the Marcell area. We lost a couple of big old trees from the front yard. Sad. Some local kids even reported a tornado. Can anyone confirm that?

Just talked to the relatives that live on Graves near Marcell. They have a bunch of trees down, but thankfully no damage to any buildings or people. They could not verify any tornado, but said winds were easily 50 mph. Lots of work to do now in the woods to get ready for deer season. They also said 1 1/2" of rain in a very short time. I need to find some tine to get up that way as I have not been up there this year. Sunnies should be biting soon.

I was on duty last Saturyday night in Deer River and had to wear the "weather spotter" hat for about an hour from 7pm to 8pm. According to the Nat'l Weather Service there was a Tornado Warning and Severe T-Storm Warning. I did see alot of rotation in the clouds, but no funnel clouds or tornados seen by me. 1 person did call our dispatch to report a funnel cloud north of Deer River, but that's where I was and I didn't see anything. We got very little rain in town, but NE of town got pounded all the way up to Marcell. I heard lots of trees down in that area and winds estimated at 40mph +. The storm came in fast and left just as fast. Definitely a tense hour or so with those rotating clouds!

We have a place between Moose and Deer lake and we lost a big white pine and a couple of old trees. I was outside trying to save my screen house but it got a little to crazy so I gave up and now it is trashed. My antenna that is on a mast also blew over and is in need of repair.It seemed that there was a narrow area that sustained the super high winds. My guess it was straight line winds but the weird part was that it lasted for 20 min. and with how strong the winds were I still had 3/4 of a inch of rain in my gauge. This weekend the work will start cleaning and burning.

My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
